Ex-voto, after 1983. Ink and crayon on paper, 11 x 14 in. Saul Steinberg Papers, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University. Caption: “In winter when the border shrubs lose their leaves dogs cross my land in a diagonal shortcut. Trespass! I tried to hit one with a potato. He brought it back to me. Good dog! Tears came to my eyes. I was born in a country where the gesture of throwing a rock will send a dog squealing in terror.”
